Where I've been......

Well...... I've been designing, amongst other things, kids clothes. I have also made some sweet curtains for a dear friend for her nursery, altered some prom dresses, and launched my spring line. My days are filled with cutting folding and ironing patterns. If you stop by unannounced to my home you will undoubtably be greeted by the hum of my sewing machine... my two boxers in the window and pandora blasting worship music. My son Jordan will run outside and hug you, and my youngest daughter will be in some type of princess attire. I love my life! .........................................But I've missed you all.

So I've been gathering props for my photos for padiddle designs and I wanted to share some of the things I have found.

Flash photography

So my flash broke on my camera, I needed an external flash or a new camera both were outside my budget.
So I looked on eBay and found this! Too good to be true $7. With free shipping!!! WHAT!! And it WORKS! It came with 4 color filters(which I don't know how to use) and a case. These things go for around $500. Incredible. Marcy is going to come show me how to use it correctly this afternoon.
(thanks Marcy)

So I guess I work at moxie now.

Who would have thought, they called me in for an interview to do wedding hair. It's just about perfect since it will only be on Saturdays. God is good right? This pretty much just fell in my lap. Well so I'm hoping the wedding hair money can fund my new clothing business. And I can still stay home with my munchkins. ; )

New boys line is here

Making up a lot of boys vests and bow ties, and driving caps. Classy. Made from old men's suit jackets and some vintage leather buttons and leather faux pockets. Ittoook about a week and a half to perfect the patterns but I love the way they turned out.

lauren on the way to church

On the way to church lauren was talking to me about when jesus comes back an she said when jesus comes, I'm gonna run up to him and hug his leg. Perspective. I love it. Probably the last year for leg hugging. Sad. : (
